Purpose: The goal is to get young and beginner wrestlers mat experience with a low stress environment. This will be an opportunity to learn the rules and procedures of a wrestling match and dual. Good sportsmanship will be learned from positive encouragement from coaches and teammates. The League will be a six team round robin with one dual a week for five weeks.
Procedure: First, teams will be led through a group warm-up. After, there will be a 30 minute technique session focusing on common and key wrestling positions for beginner wrestlers. Last teams will wrestle one dual, which coaches representing the teams will referee the matches.
Matches: Will wrestle three periods of one minute. Penalties, such as locked hands are to be stopped and explained to wrestler that it is illegal, but not penalized points. Pins will be called slower than usual to give wrestlers a chance to learn how to get off their backs and get more mat experience.
Weight Classes: There will be weight classes that will be agreed upon by the teams participating prior to the start date.
